RIBA Client of the Year 2013

The RIBA has announced the National Trust as the 2013 RIBA Client of the Year.

The RIBA Client of the Year award, honours the key role that a good client plays in the creation of fine architecture.

This year's judges are Philip Gumuchdjian, Julia Barfield and Head of RIBA Awards, Tony Chapman. They consider clients of all RIBA Award winning schemes but take into account a track record of previous successful commissioning, particularly where this has led to earlier RIBA Awards.

The winner will be announced at the RIBA Stirling event on 26 September 2013 in London at Central Saint Martins.
